Description & Analysis

The 1852 has an original mintage of nearly 1.2 million pieces, a total that confirms its status as one of the more easily obtainable quarter eagles from the 1850s. Relative to the number of high quality gold collectors in today's hobby, however, near Gems are scarce, and higher grades are rare.
